Richeom is on a distinguished road
Fluent won't solve my mesh as I have used a Far Field Pressure Boundary.

Should I change my mesh to an inlet/outlet type when taking air to be incompressible?

What type should my walls be?

Given that my fluid flow is the vector addition of bladespeed and windspeed, the wind vector is going to be relatively large, should I make my 2D 'tunnel' taller than I ordinarily would?
